Congratulations to James and Stef!
Where: Dreams Palm Beach in Punta Cana
When: June 4th, 2014
I have wanted to write you and Lauren both to tell you how ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL our wedding was!!! Our entire party had an AMAZING time!! From the moment we landed in the DR we felt like complete royalty! We were automatically upgraded to the honeymoon sweet and preferred guest amenities which was an awesome surprise!! The entire week was more than I could have hoped for and we STILL say that we want to go back and do it again!! (our guests say the same to us!) We really appreciate the help of your team especially Lauren and Ryan!! The staff was incredible! So friendly, helpful, and never made us or our guests feel like an inconvenience…we all felt so well taken care of the entire week!! Johanna was very friendly. The day of the wedding she was very calm and things seemed to go smoothly. The reception turned out to be so BEAUTIFUL and she even requested of her manager to extend our time by 30min because we were having so much fun and to make up for time lost due to the photographer arriving late.
I really didn’t know what to expect from VIP because I’ve never used a travel agent before. I can say that it was a HUGE relief not to have to worry about my guests reservations/questions/issues, etc. and the fact that I could say to them “Just talk to the travel agency” was so incredible….so yes, the services were exceptional!
Lauren was badass!! 🙂 She was always on top of things, super quick to respond to me and I knew stuff was getting done with her on my side! Her personality shined through her emails and I felt like I could be very “matter -of-fact” with her…she relieved a lot of stress for me
Thank you again for everything! The champagne upon arrival and private transportation was awesome and seriously, our wedding was truly magical 🙂 My sincerest thanks!!
Aloha Friends and Family!
We are SO EXCITED to share in celebrating our marriage with you and hope that you are able to join us! We are getting married on June 4th at 5pm on the beach at Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana Resort in the Dominican Republic. We are looking forward to spending time with you in this beautiful place not only to celebrate getting hitched, but also to party it up as a “Last Hoorah” before we start our new chapter in life as we move to England!!
We know this is happening fast so,
A few things to keep in mind:
– A minimum 3-night stay is required by the resort. It is all-inclusive which means the cost covers your room, food, booze, and use of non-motorized equipment (snorkels, kayaks, etc.).
– A refundable deposit of $150 per person is required to reserve your room. We have blocked rooms that will remain held until March 17th. Your deposit becomes “non-refundable” after that date. Final payments must be made by March 28th.
– A passport is required for the Dominican Republic (including children)
– I believe one of the restaurants has dress requirements so gentlemen, make sure to bring a pair of closed-toe shoes and slacks
– Some people have been asking about wedding attire: the ceremony is going to be held on the beach with the sand beneath your toes 🙂
**Dress is “Aloha Casual” (our hawaii friends, you know what that means) …. in short, sundresses/skirts for the ladies and light pants/slacks/kakis/polo/short sleeved button down for the guys (No, board shorts and a t-shirt are not ok Clint and Brian..wink wink!!)
There are tons of activities you can book through the hotel to make your vacation even more awesome…scuba diving, zip-lining, snorkel trips, catamaran sails, swimming with the dolphins and sharks, etc. The whole trip is meant to be laid back, casual, and FUN so don’t feel like you can’t venture off and do your own thing!!!!
Check back on the website as the date gets closer for any updates!!
We are just excited to see you all, have fun, make some memories and hope you are too!!!!! — And don’t worry….what happens in Punta Cana, stays in Punta Cana 🙂
See you in June!!!!!
